“He looked at [her] and kind of placed her face in his hands and said, ‘You’re beautiful,’ and he kissed her right on the mouth, walked out of the elevator and that was the end of that,” he revealed.

“I never got to sing for him again, she loves to remind me of that story…I think it was probably unacceptable then, but it was a situation where it was an interesting thing — I think because of my affection for him, in the context, she thought it was hilarious. But obviously it’s completely inappropriate,” he went on to explain.
